I an article on age discrimination in the high tech industries a commenter came up with this analogy.

Actually to me the software industry appears to have more in common with prostitution.
1. Time is money.
2. You can’t be choosy about customers.
3. Everybody wants you on your back with your legs up.
4. Getting older and more experienced is not necessarily a positive development.

My advice? If you are good – become a contractor. No one cares about your age. Just if you can do your job.
